The menu is large and wide-ranging, though I find it hard to stray from the various crab and oyster specialties. There's always a variety of fresh fish, prepared most any way you want. The portions are large and the preparations are more classic than trendy. The Crab Shanty does what it can to appeal to everyone. There's a Sunday Brunch (menu), curbside pick-up service, and you can always go across the street to the large Sea King seafood market and Pig Pickers barbeque if the Shanty is too crowded.
